Saravanaa Bhavan, Ilford, London IG1

Welcome back, belatedly!

This week's featured article is Saravanaa Bhavan, IG1 4PU in sunny Ilford. It's part of an international vegetarian Indian chain, and maybe you've been to one of the other London branches in East Ham or Tooting? Ganesha will watch peacefully over your dosa eating if you visit this spacious branch.

Other additions are a shabby pub/restaurant in Worcester Park/Cheam called The HG Wells, a Nigerian restaurant called Coal City in Edmonton (why not surprise the staff by visiting), and Chang's Noodle in London's fashionable Chinatown (excellent quality, and expect more than one noodle).

There's an update to The Gilpin's Bell in Edmonton, now under non-Wetherspoons ownership, but still offering Ruddles and similar cask beers.

Reported closures are Arbutus (always a bastion of unpretentious Michelin-starred fine dining) and The Windsor Castle in Marylebone (a bastion for the moustachioed gentleman).

Finally a couple of reopenings are The Fitzroy Tavern in Fitzrovia, and One and One Chinese buffet in Angel (now with meat, bucking the trend towards veganism).

Mother Kelly's, Bethnal Green, E2

Hello all! A tripe-free update this week.

This week's featured article is Mother Kelly's, a rather pleasant bar under a railway arch in Bethnal Green. It has a large number of interesting beers, both on keg taps and in bottles, and it's run by Steve Mason of Mason & Taylor fame, so expect plenty of hops. They also have jugs of tap water on the tables, a trend which I hope other drinking establishments pick up on.

We have two new restaurant articles, with cuisine from opposite ends of the Mediterranean: Sheesh Mangal in Worcester Park serves decent Turkish food ([personal profile] bob approves of the hummous), while Dar Marrakech is a toddler-friendly Moroccan restaurant in Stratford, which provides belly dancing on request! Dar Marrakech also does Lebanese food, which I judge makes its geographical culinary midpoint somewhere near Malta.

Finally, Shahee Bhelpoori in Norbury has closed.
